HC Deb 18 March 1875 vol 223 cc24-5

asked the Under Secretary State for Foreign Affairs, Whether the attention of Her Majesty's Government has been called to the case of Mr. and Mrs. Dodsham, who were attacked by a gang of brigands near Galatz on Sunday the 7th February; and, what steps Her Majesty's Government have taken in reference to this outrage? He might say that he had lately obtained information which had satisfied him that the accounts in the newspapers were not exaggerated.


, in reply, said, that he was not surprised at the Question, for it was impossible to describe in too strong terms the barbarity and gross cruelty of the outrage. As soon as information respecting the outrage reached the Foreign Office instructions were sent to the British Consul in Roumania to urge the Government to bring the perpetrators of the outrage to justice as soon as possible.
